before the session
It is important to me to get to know my clients so I can photograph them in the most authentic way possible. This means I take the time to talk with each client prior to the photo session. During this meeting we will chat about goals for the session, about your and your family's personalities, and how things will unfold during the shoot. This helps gets you comfortable with me so when I am there with my camera on our shooting day, you can be your true, authentic self.
During the Session
My approach during shoots is relaxed and fun. I want to capture your family's personality and encourage interaction and playfulness! We take a walk together, I observe, and engage by asking prompting questions to get emotions flowing. I ask kids to play a game of chase or whisper a secret in a siblings ear to get a natural reaction.
after the session
While I firmly believe you should be able to do whatever you want with your moments, which is why I make sure you have your own high-resolution digital copies, I also know that you can’t proudly display a thumb drive on the coffee table or hand it around at your next gathering. This is why I encourage you to choose your favorite moments and let me provide you with a custom-designed wall gallery ready to hang and display beautifully in your space.
Three weeks after your session, I will send you a link for you to preview your images in a private online gallery. I am there to help you decide which images will look best as an art piece and where you may want to display them in your home.
With the use of my online gallery wall designer to view images scaled to your own walls so you know exactly what the images will look like. I am happy to upload other personal photos for you if you want to put together a wall gallery with a mix of photos.
2-3 Weeks later, I'll contact you and let you know your photos have arrived and schedule a time for pick up hand delivery to you!
